I’m not a poet she said

I don’t get poetry.


everything she says is poetical

She views the world in deep metaphors.

She embodies poetry.

Giving something a name

gives it power, she said.

Am I a poet

because I accept the name?



(Write about that abalone, Tina!)

    Beautiful, profound and also very simple – all hallmarks of the truth. You are a poet, Shawn.

    What a blessing to have something like this written of you. Fortunate lady.

  3. If I sense deep pools of cold water in a mans eyes am I scared or do I jump in?
    If she thinks then she is a poet!

  4. You are a poet- and we all know it. 🙂
